In acute situations, patients can be admitted via the Behavioral Health Emergency Department at University Medical Center of Princeton. This six-bed, private area is dedicated to providing safe and secure acute care for behavioral health patients. Staffed by two crisis clinicians/therapists at all times, the area allows for confidential communication, treatment, and transfers as needed.
Our Princeton inpatient site also includes a State-Designated Short-Term Care Facility (STCF). This 21-bed, 25,000-square-foot acute care psychiatric unit is designated by The State of New Jersey’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services as a specialized setting where adults with acute psychiatric or co-occurring disorders are treated with compassion and dignity when they meet the State standard for involuntary hospitalization. Every effort is made to stabilize the patient’s condition and to return him or her to community support as soon as possible. Access is via designated screening centers for Hunterdon, Middlesex, and Somerset counties.
